Re: Making a bench machine on the tyan dual core pentium...
Rebooting is tipical of Windows XP when there is an important error. Most of the time this error is coming from the hardware.
There is a way to know the error code that make Windows XP mad, but you have to eliminate the automatic restart option.
With your mouse right click on My Computer, select properties, select advanced and you should see something similar:
deselect Automatically restart.
At this point next time you will have the error instead of rebooting you will see a blue screen with some message at the top and some code at the bottom, please write them down and post them here.
In case you cannot even enter in Windows XP because is keeping rebooting too fast, try to do the above steps in Safe mode.
To enter in Windows in Safe mode you have to press F8 as soon as you boot and before you see the windows logo on you screen, then select safe mode and repeat the steps above.Making a bench machine on the tyan dual core penti - 8b0fc4d.jpeg src="/uploads/images/8b0fc4d.jpeg" alt="8b0fc4d.jpeg" class="h_mi" />
Last but not least, please send me the exact type of motherboard, processor and memory that you are using.

You may want to try your last good configuration... Reboot your computer and
hit F8 during the startup to get to that option.
If that doesn't work... try unpluging your mouse and keyboard from your tower
and restarting the computer. Once it restarts then plug your mouse and keyboard
back in to see if XP finds them.
Hook up a second mouse.Uninstall the device completely after disconnecting. Reboot twice. With the second mouse still installed, run the software to install the IRock, only using the new driver if possible. Leave the other mouse hooked up and reboot. It should work from there.
If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.
make sure you have met the minimum hardware requierments when installing your XP...which is
with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz
minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel
Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible
128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
CD-ROM or DVD drive
Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
If you had no problems installing the XP second time around your problem is definitely not the harddrive. Suspect that that error you got was a blue screen. You problem most probably lies with your memory modules (RAM) if you are using more than one memory module then you need to check that they work on the same frequency (probably not since you are having this problem) If you are in fact using more than one module try just using one. If you only have one then you might try another as this one could be faulty. As to NTFS it is the best suitable format for XP therefore that is not a problem. Let me know how things turn out. Thanks
